Mohamad Hafez to present
12 PM in Plymouth Building West Wing

Syrian artist and architect Mohamad Hafez creates mixed and multi-media sculptures representing Middle Eastern streetscapes and buildings besieged by civil war, deliberately contrasted with hopeful verses from the Holy Quran, audio recordings from his homeland, and other elements of his Islamic heritage. At First United Church of Christ in Milford, Mr. Hafez will discuss how his surrealistic art reflects political turmoil through the compilation of found objects, paint, and scrap metal revealing personal stories about life in the conflict and the aftermath of wars on his family.
His recent exhibition Desperate Cargo at Real Art Ways in Hartford was a multimedia installation that incorporated wall murals, pre-war sculpture depicting the post-war reality, miniature elements, and photography, focusing on the war and the current refugee crisis.

The public is invited to Hafez's talk, which will take place on Sunday October 2, 2016 at 12:00 PM at First United Church of Christ Congregational, Plymouth Building, 18 West Main St., Milford, CT. Free will offering to benefit Integrated Refugee & Immigration Services (IRIS) of New Haven and Sojourners Haven, First Church's transitional housing.
